City Council president Chris Jensen and Bingham County Commissioner Whitney Manwaring shared "state of the â€¦." messages with members of the Greater Blackfoot Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday.
Among the accomplishments of city workers in 2012, Jensen said, were the completion of various road projects and of improvements at Jensen Grove.
They also added an Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant lift in the swimming pool and completed a new water storage tank and booster station.
The Yuma County Sheriff's Department is not ruling out that missing Blackfoot man Laurence J. "Jack" Doering, 82, may still be trying to make his way back to Blackfoot. Doering, and his wife Leah [Doering], live in Blackfoot but have been in the Yuma, Ariz., area since October.
Doering, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease, has been missing since last Thursday after he got ahold of the car keys while he and his wife were getting haircuts at a shopping plaza near Yuma. Doering took off by himself in a tan/grey 2002 Chevrolet Suburban with Idaho license plates.
